The Affordable Care Act Explained…By a College Freshman

Duckncover screen grabCandace Joyner, a freshman at the University of Oregon, looked around and realized that her fellow Ducks weren’t understanding how the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) would impact them. To no fault of her classmates. Not only is the Affordable Care Act a complicated law to understand, but there’s also been very little advertising and outreach aimed at young adults. With that in mind, Candace decided to do something about it. She teamed up with a few UO student leaders and created a campaign called “Duck ‘N’ Cover,” complete with the website:

The site is designed to give college students a crash course in the Affordable Care Act, and to help young people understand just how important it is to have health insurance. It’s written for college students, because it’s from a college student. Candace isn’t affiliated with an insurance company or the government, she’s just a student trying to help her peers. We absolutely applaud her effort.

Check out a profile from Eugene Oregon’s “The Register Guard” about Duck N’ Cover, Candace, and her team’s education efforts: UO Student Tackles ACA Complications.
